    Crowns, schmowns. For me, it's all about yer diggin' prowess, which is considerable! :D

    Seriously, though, crowns are nice, too. Now go dig some up!

    A crown a week is an admirable collecting goal.

    I attempted to post to your blog but was unable to as it always gave me verification errors. After 15" I gave up. I'll post my comment below instead.

    Congratulations on your 1632 Thaler. The common dates of these run in the late 1690's to early 1700's. I stopped collecting US coins in the 1990's and moved to World coinage as they're a lot more historical. As you know thalers were made starting in 1486 with the 1st half thaler in 1484. I just saw the pair in the Bodin Museum in Germany. European auctions carry a lot of these in much better condition than Ebay & are a lot more reliable.

    Very nice! What criteria are you using to determine what you are going to collect? I have a few Silver crowns that I have picked up over the years, but I mainly picked them up at random. I never really had a direction. I started collecting 1 ounce Silver Bullion coins about 10 years ago and have a nice assortment but I am thinking about adding to the crowns. A bit more historic and interesting.

    well a lot has changed since I started doing this. my son is getting married next month and I stopped buying coins for the last few months. I have also noticed that crowns that were fairly cheap last year, seem to have all gone up in price. I also just seeing the same old inventory everywhere. I guess everyone is hoarding they're coins like I am
    lately I've become interested in Netherlands coins. finding decent 16-1700's pieces isn't easy around here.
